Murphy wins Hilary Society Gold Medal

Eoin Murphy has got his 2019 season off to a great start by winning the Hilary Society’s Gold Medal for the player who shoots the lowest aggregate nett scores from three outings. His four under par score beat long-time leader Graham Lynch (Co. Louth) by a single shot thanks to an eagle, par, birdie finish in the final event at Royal Dublin.

This was Eoin’s first year as a member of the Hilary Society and he has emulated the feat of clubmate Clem Walshe who also won the gold medal in his first year as a member back in 2001.

Walshe also won the Gold Medal in 2016 and, playing off four, he was also the overall winner in Royal Dublin with a nett 72 where Murphy (+1) captured his third gross prize of the season with a 74. The Dundalk pair also teamed up with Sean Murphy from Greenore win the team prize with a score of 65.
